We've improved the skill add-ons for each class. Previously, you chose 2 out of 6 given add-ons and added them to your character's skills, but now you can choose the add-ons you want from 24 add-ons (shared across all classes). The limitations of the previous system led adventurers to approach the add-ons as if there was a correct formula to use them, but with this renewal, we hope that adventurers will be more experimental in their customizations of their skill add-ons according to their play style. Also, before we had grouped our skill add-on effects into 5 levels (for example, the amount of Monster AP increased differed depending on the skill) based on the skill's cooldown time and utility, but now we've reduced it to 3 levels in order to increase their utility. Additionally, we've made adjustments based on adventurer opinions on how the skill add-on effects were being applied to all hits for certain skills.

 

● Fixed the issue where the target of a successful grab skill would sometimes display irregular movements.

 

 

Sorceress

● Sinister Omen - Fixed the issue where the sound effect continued to play in the Skill Demo.

● Succession: Ankle Cutter - Fixed the Preceding Skill description to display correct skill name.

● Smokescreen I–V, Prime: Smokescreen - Fixed the issue where the skill add-on effect would not be applied on good hits.

● Black Spirit: Skull Crusher and Black Spirit: Ultimate Crush - Fixed the issue where Echo Spirits would not appear in the Skill Demo.
